“Great hotel with a great price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

Upon arrival at the airport, the hotel provides tuk-tuk service to pick you up and bring you to the hotel. The room is spacious enough, clean and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was great given the price of the hotel, the buffet table is full of choices and they even provide packed breakfast for those who will leave at 5am to catch the sunrise at Angkor Wat. One of the greatest advantage of the hotel is the location that is very near the Pub street and the Old market that you can actually walk and even enjoy the scenery of siem reap. But for those who wanted to take a tuk tuk they are readily available in front of the hotel. Just haggle with them and transact the price before riding. During our trip, it almost rained everyday so the nearness of the hotel made us go back from our nightlife without the hassle of getting wet. The hotel provides tour services but we made advance booking through a guide prior to our arrival. The pool is also great since its salt water. I just hope they provide better quality tiolet paper and better quality soap. But generally Im very happy to have chosen this hotel.

Accommodation in this kingdom is numerous from simple home stay to fabulous hotels. Royal Crown Hotel stands to its name of providing superb hotel experience for guests of all classes and races. It was an old hotel renovated a few years back to offer newer designs and varied options in accommodation. There is additional building with western-style room while retaining the beauty of the old hotel. It was my first time to stay in a hotel with separate fresh and salt-water swimming pools. The lobby was spacious and cool with numerous sitting options. Front desk was open 24/7 manned by polite, friendly, accommodating staff. It provides hotel-airport transfer and arranges transport services to Phnom Penh and other places of interests within Siem Reap. There was laundry service and Wifi was readily accessible. It has a cozy restaurant serving Asian and western cuisine ; food tastes great and reasonably priced. Food at the poolside and room service were available. There was also a roof top bar offering various drinks plus barbecue grill... a nice place to spend free time out while enjoying the view of the city and the sunset. The room was spacious and clean, bed was comfortable to rest and sleep. There was mini bar plus free water and coffee maker. There was wide screen cable tv. Cooling system was good. Local landline, cell phone and Wifi signals were good. The bathroom was big as well with separate space for shower and tub. Robe, sleepers, towels, tissue roll, shower cap, shampoo and the likes were freely available. The hotel was strategically located just across the Pub Street and near the Night Market.
One thing though that bothered me was that some hotel staff tried to arrange a 'deal' with tuk-tuk drivers for 'unreasonably high rate' compared with prevailing standard. Good i was able to ask some friends and read a lot about Cambodia before this trip. I took a taxi instead for small difference in fare considering the comfort in a cab. Had it not for this experience, I would have rated Royal Crown Hotel excellent.

This was my first trip to Cambodia and I wasn't sure what to expect. Firstly, it was great that the hotel organised a courtesy pick up from the airport which meant we didn't waste any time arranging transport. The room was spacious, clean and the bed very comfortable and wi-fi coverage was constant. I would suggest that better quality toilet roll would be a good investment for the hotel. The pool was nice to cool off in and the pool bar/restaurant service there very good. I used the laundry service which was very quick and everything came back clean. The staff were willing and courteous and helped us arrange onward transport to Phnom Penh. Great location near the night market and pub street. We experienced no problems with mosquitos. Maybe it depends on the time of year.

Room Tip: Balconies are only good as an extra if you want to dry clothes.

Siem Reap has a ton of hotels like this one but it was a great value for the price. We paid about $35/night and had a really nice western-style room. The wifi worked really well too which is awesome because it usually sucks in Cambodia. The food at the pool is pretty reasonably priced and tasty. It's also just across the way from Pub Street so you don't need a tuk tuk.

The locations was great, room clean and spacious, the staff were helpful when we requested changing our rooms from twins to a double but the mosquitos didn't leave us alone. They were everywhere. We were waking up several times a night being bitten alive! No idea where they were getting in from but it was an absolute nuisance. We mentioned to the staff about it, thought they might have had some spray but they just looked at us blankly. We bought repellent coils, RAID and insect repellent but those mozzies would not leave us alone. If your ok waking up covered in welts, stay here. Otherwise stay elsewhere.

Overall average hotel. It has a few redeeming features: location (close to pub street and night market), cheap accommodation for its location n good spread at breakfast.
Staff appeared not to have undergone enough training to handle common requests, rooms were standard size rather than huge as depicted in pictures, bathroom has a smell that won't go away despite the ventilator is left on. The shower's water temperature does not stay constant. It fluctuates between scalding hot to cold and back again.

Room Tip: Higher floors experienced less noise and never leave anything truly valuable in the hotel safe.

Both my husband n I are greatly impressed by the staffs' services at Royal Crown Hotel. The staffs are very friendly n they always readily greeted us with a smile. The room is spacious n clean. The location is good. You can take a short walk (Abt 5 mins) to the night market or the Pub Street. It will cost abr U$1 to go by Tuk Tuk but the driver normal will ask for U$2. You will need to bargain with them. I do look forward to stay in this hotel during my next visit.
